    New rear seat to trunk steel divider for your Mercury Cougar. We had this one made specifically for the Mercury Cougar and it is designed to replace the flimsy tar based cardboard factory divider.

    We have noticed that after 40 plus years of chassis flex, the welds on the cross braces behind the rear seat tend to be broken. When installed properly behind the rear seat, this 18 gauge steel divider will provide stiffness to the chassis. This divider can be bonded, screwed or welded into your car and will also provide insulation from sound and temperature that seeps in from the trunk.

    Check out our video below on suspension and chassis upgrades.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    Took a little grinding to fit, but that can be expected since each car is different. Bought this after seeing one of my rear cross braces were separated from the floor, really looking forward to seeing this thing stiffen up the car. Overall really quality steel plate and easy install. I love wccc and plan on buying here for all of my needs.

    Pros:
    • Nice heavy gauge metal.
    Cons:
    • Some trimming to fit.
    This is an excellent component and a "must have" for any restoration. Nice gauge metal that arrived well packaged. Took some trimming with a cut-off wheel get to fit, but provides rigidity to the area in addition to deadening sound. I glued on extra insulation to the side facing the trunk and you don't even know the panel is there.

    Nice Heavy duty divider Was going to make my own but I'm glad I did'nt bother. Would have saved some money but would have spent a whole day making a template and cutting, plus, did'nt have the right metal on hand

    Cons:
    Bad

    1) Some small trimming might be required. I have a 70 coupe. I had to make the two top notches about 1/2" deeper, and had to trim about 3/8" off the driver side wheel well cutout.

    2) I doubt this will apply to most, but i have a serious sound system in my cat. This cut down on the sub Hz's getting into the cab. Just about 15% though.

    Good

    1) Holy crap does this thing stiffen up the chassis twist.

    Install

    Use a sheet of dynomat if possible. I did and it lowers the resonating frequency of the sheet metal substantially. In my opinion a silicon gasket is not required. After cranking down all the self tapping screws, no rattles were heard.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    After removing the remnants of the old insulation it was apparent the better support and protection was needed. The video was helpful and also suggest that it will provide additional stiffness (can't judge that yet). I did find some broken tack welds on one of the diagonal braces so some reinforcement will help. I made a paper pattern to check fit and locate holes for the attachment screws. The divider panel did need a bit of trimming due to variations in the car. A pneumatic nibbler worked well. I pre-drilled holes in the divider and then put it in place. Drilled the through holes and installed screws. I made some simple clips and hung the new insulation and installed the seat.
